Taking Flight

I'll be attending the SCBWI conference in Nashua, New Hampshire, the weekend of April 11 -13. The weekend's festivities include a poster showcase. Here's a sketch of my poster - a boy and his pterodactyl terrorizing Boston Common.

I apologize to police everywhere for resorting to the clichéd "cop eating food on the job". I did manage to resist drawing him with a donut.

Hey, now! Cops gotta eat, don't they? *I* eat on the job, and I bet you do, too. It was noble of you to forgo the donut, though...

Wowza! It's a really great sketch - I can picture you doing a really great job with the finish too!

Really like this sketch! I have a fondness for dinos of all kinds. Lots of action. Very dynamic. The dog is a cute touch. Background looks good. Might consider adding small teeth to the pterodactyl. The cop's hand looks a tad awkward and he looks upset. I wonder if he should be more afraid. Should be a very strong/striking piece when it's done. Can't wait to see it in color!

Let's see the color version (well, I've seen it but not your other fans.) It's un-Commonly good! Get it? Boston Commons. I know, I know--that "joke" was just dreadful...
